The photohunters theme this week is surprise. It was easy for me to go to one of the dates in my photo archives where I was surprised by my family, because I was surprised when I turned 50 in 2007. Bill and I went to Manhattan and I knew I would see my sister (blond on the left hand side of photo below) who lives in Manhattan. What I didn't know was my other sister (she's in the middle of the shot) and my daughter (right hand side wearing a hat) were going to surprise me by coming to Manhattan for my birthday weekend too. Very nice surprises and a fun way to turn 50.
I almost posted photographs of the surprises nature has for me on a daily basis, an unexpected butterfly, or spider web, or a new bloom on a flower I thought was done blooming. However, I think I'll leave it with my 50th birthday surprises almost two years ago. The last shot was taken that same weekend of me and my daughter.
At first I was going to leave it with the first photograph but every now and then a new reader to my blog will mention being surprised to realize that I am a woman. My name is a bit confusing on that score. So I thought I'd surprise anyone who thinks Carver is a man by including the shot above of me and my daughter taken the weekend I turned 50 in 2007, although I think I posted this shot before.
